Louis Walsh, we want a word with you.

What the hell are you thinking ditching the brilliant and cute Benji Matthews from X Factor’s deliciously wicked Six Chair Challenge.

From the moment we saw him in his first audition, we fell hook, line and sinker in love with the kooky singer songwriter.

Then, at Boot Camp, we were mesmerised when he sang one of his own compositions and knew then that he was one serious contender.

So when it came to the Six Chair Challenge, we reckoned the lovely fella was going through to Judges’ Houses without question.

But no.

That silly Louis had other ideas and sent the poor chap packing after he made him perform a sing off with sexy Lloyd and Spencer.

Like us at home, the audience were furious and booed Louis’ decision.

But is Benji is off the show for good? We all know what the X Factor is like with it’s trickery.

Or could he make a surprise return as a wild card as others have in previous years?

We certainly hope so.

If not, we definitely looking forward to hearing a lot more from Benji as we reckon he is probably the type of young artiste who will make big with or without the help of The X Factor.
